A large number of missions are looking for ice hiding on the moon

Building a space station on the moon may seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but each new lunar mission brings that idea closer to reality. Scientists are focusing on potential lunar ice reservoirs in permanently shadowed regions, or PSRs. These are critical to establishing any form of sustainable lunar infrastructure.
